    Does anyone know if fake sugar really is better for you?

    It's artificial, why would artificial be better?

    Splenda, stevia etc?

    I just see all of these recipes saying to use splenda or stevia as its low calories etc, they recommend it for people with diabetes and other health issues.

    I always thought even if the real sugar is higher in calories, its more natural compared to the artificial crap!

    Stevia is plant based so I'd imagine is better than slenda.

    Stevia is definitely OK, it's from the stevia plant as pp said, and xylitol is actually good for your teeth, it comes from birch tree bark or from corn.

    The chemical ones I wouldn't touch with a barge pole.

    Things like aspartame have a bad reputation although research shows it is safe enough for human consumption. Stevia is a good alternative if you prefer a more 'natural' alternative.
